Ingredients for Nutella French Toast

  • Bread slices: Slices of bread act as the base for the French toast, providing a soft and absorbent texture to soak up the egg mixture and chocolate spread.
  • Nutella chocolate spread: This creamy and indulgent spread adds a rich and chocolatey flavor to the French toast, giving it a delicious and sweet taste.
  • Butter: Used for cooking the French toast, butter adds a savory and nutty flavor while preventing it from sticking to the pan and creating a crispy outer layer.
  • Milk: A key ingredient in the egg mixture, milk adds creaminess and richness to the French toast, enhancing its overall texture and taste.
  • Egg: Lightly beaten eggs are combined with milk to create the egg mixture, providing a binding agent and adding protein to the French toast.
  • Vanilla essence: This aromatic and sweet flavoring enhances the overall taste of the French toast, adding a hint of warmth and depth to the dish.

How To Make Nutella French Toast?

If you're looking for a delicious and indulgent breakfast treat, then chocolate French toast is the way to go! Here's a simple guide to creating this delightful dish.

  • Start by spreading 2 tsp of Nutella chocolate spread onto one side of each of 2 slices of bread, and then top each with another slice of bread to make 3 sandwiches.
  • Now, in a wide bowl, beat together 1/2 cup of milk, 1 large lightly beaten egg, 1 tbsp of sugar, and 1/2 tsp of vanilla essence until well combined.
  • Next, heat a nonstick pan over medium heat and soak each sandwich in the egg mixture until it is well coated. Then, melt some butter on the pan and place the sandwiches on the hot pan to cook until browned.
  • After adding 1/2 tsp of butter on the top, flip the sandwiches and continue cooking until the other side is also browned.
  • Finally, remove the sandwiches from the heat and dust them with cinnamon powder and powdered sugar. For the finishing touch, garnish with some fresh raspberries.

The key to a flavorful experience lies in the quality of ingredients and the cooking process. Ensure that the bread is well-coated in the egg mixture and that it is cooked to a delicious golden brown on both sides. This will give you the perfect blend of creamy Nutella and fluffy French toast in every bite.

Feel free to experiment with different spreads such as jam, to create your own unique twist on this recipe!

How to Store Nutella French Toast

  • Storing the Bread Slices: It is important to store the bread slices in an airtight container or a resealable bag to maintain their freshness. This will prevent them from becoming dry and stale, ensuring they are ready to use for your next batch of chocolate French toast.
  • Preserving the Nutella Chocolate Spread: To keep the Nutella chocolate spread fresh, make sure to tightly seal the jar after each use. Store it in a cool, dark place, away from direct sunlight and heat. This will prevent the spread from melting and losing its creamy consistency.
  • Maintaining Fresh Raspberries: Fresh raspberries should be stored in the refrigerator, either in their original packaging or in a breathable container lined with paper towels to absorb any excess moisture. This will help to prolong their shelf life and keep them juicy for garnishing your chocolate French toast.
  • Proper Storage of Milk and Eggs: Milk should be kept refrigerated at all times, while eggs should also be stored in the fridge in their original carton to preserve their freshness. Make sure to check the expiration dates and use them within the recommended timeframe for the best results.
  • Extending the Shelf Life of Vanilla Essence: To maintain the quality of your vanilla essence, store it in a cool, dark place and tightly close the cap after each use. Avoid exposing it to heat or sunlight, as this can affect its flavor and aroma over time.
  • Tips for Storing Powdered Sugar and Cinnamon Powder: Both powdered sugar and cinnamon powder should be kept in airtight containers to prevent clumping and retain their freshness. Store them in a cool, dry place away from any moisture or humidity, and they will be ready to use for dusting your chocolate French toast.
